Written answers (Question to Health)

The level of funding available for the health budget for 2015 has not yet been determined. Deliberations by the Government on the expenditure allocations for 2015 are likely to continue up until Budget time. As with previous Budgets, the difficult financial position facing the Exchequer will obviously require very careful management across all areas of expenditure.
